RVS gets management recognition

Published:  17 January, 2018

Refuse Vehicle Solutions (RVS) has been awarded two management accreditations: BS OHSAS 18001 for occupational health and safety management and ISO 14001:2015 for environmental management.

RVS managing director Spencer Law said: ‘We are committed to achieving the highest possible standards across every area of the business. The health and safety of our staff is of the greatest importance to us, as is our impact on the environment. These accreditations are testament to the professionalism of our team in implementing robust processes and procedures.’

By implementing the BS OHSAS 18001 system, RVS hopes to create the best possible working conditions for its staff, identifying hazards and putting controls in place to manage them, reducing workplace accidents and illness, as well as demonstrating compliance to customers and suppliers. Similarly, ISO 14001:2015 lays the foundations for an environmental management system to ensure the company meets the necessary compliance obligations, and achieve its objectives regarding the environment.

In 2017, RVS also achieved ISO9001:2015 quality management certification proving its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

RVS supplies a wide range refuse vehicles – new, quality used and remanufactured – as well as a host of support services including repairs, service, hire vehicles, breakdown cover, parts, finance and vehicle transportation.
